    HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\windows\current version on right of the key we have the option for product key

    The product key isn't stored on the CD.

    If Windows is still installed, you can find it as mentioned above, if not you'll need to find it
    or get hold of another copy.

    do you still have the c o a sticker that came with the cd? it should be stuck on your computer or on a windows 98se booklet. a quicker way is to use magic jellybean download it and it will tell you your product key like magic. i had to use that as i bought a used dell computer that came with nothing. everything had been removed from the computer and there were no cds with it. hope this helps you. :)
